What is an Apostle? According to Ephesians 4:11-12, apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers are given to equip Christians for the work of ministry. In today’s culture, we recognize what a teacher, pastor and evangelist is; and, to a lesser degree, we recognize what role a prophet has in the church today. Apostles: The Fathering Servant addresses the role of apostles in the church today. Have you ever read Ephesians 4:11-12 and wondered what exactly an apostle does? What are the qualifications of an apostle? What is their function within the church at large? And how do we define that role in simple terms? In Apostles: The Fathering Servant, Bill Scheidler will answer those questions for you from a fresh biblical perspective.
